i want to buy the theme – http://themeforest.net/item/ultimo-fluid-responsive-magento-theme/3231798, and use it for magneto 1.4.2, but this them feature says that it support magneto 1.5 only. So can any developer here make this theme to be made compatible with 1.4.2? Please confirm the time you need along with the cost?
You should pay someone to upgrade your platform instead. You’re asking for serious trouble running a release that’s multiple years behind. It’s an easy target.
Thanks for your advise. Can you please give me a quote to migrate our 1.4.2 magento to 1.5 or 1.6? which ever is easy?
If you do not do it, please point me to someone else.
Yes migrating your 1.4.2 magento version to a higher version will be a better solution here and we are willing to provide this service to you. Let me know if you are interested so that we can discuss details on this project and get going accordingly.
Pls let us know the quote? also kindly share your email id so that we can communicate directly.
@ jupitersaturn — I only work on upgrades for clients when I’ve had a continual presence in their operations. Here’s why:
Nobody can give you a realistic quote for this without asking a long series of questions about your implementation. For starters: Do you have a dev and staging server? How do you deploy to production / rollback changes? Have you customized the frontend package? Are you using extensions? What integrations are there?
Upgrades can easily run into thousands of dollars when done properly. You need a risk mitigation and fallback strategy if something does go wrong. Anybody who offers to do it for a few hundred dollars is cutting corners, and you’re the one on the line.
This is not something any freelancer can step in and offer you. You either need an internal technical person managing this or a technical partner that is responsible for the long-time health of your implementation.
In short, deploying software is an investment that you need to factor into the cost of doing business.
